Star Tyler Blackburn was especially unnerved while filming one upcoming episode.
"We shot in an abandoned [children's] psych hospital, which was the creepiest," he admitted to reporters during a set visit. "There have been some scary moments."
That shoot "had a particular influence on Tyler," added Steven Cabral, who plays creepy mortician Raymond Collins. "His [script] went missing at one point and he told everyone the ghost kids took [it]."
And the older Aussie actor took advantage of Blackburn's fear to exact his revenge for "disrupting" him during an earlier scene.
A new billionaire is swimming with the sharks this week on "Shark Tank."
John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of Paul Mitchell hair products and tequila distiller Patrón Spirits, is guesting alongside sharks Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner — both former guests themselves — as well as Daymond John and Kevin O'Leary.
But DeJoria is on the attack.
Like tech guru Robert Herjavec — whose seat he is filling this week — DeJoria boasts a rags-to-riches story. Once homeless, he borrowed money to bankroll his first business, launching the Paul Mitchell Systems hair-care empire with just 700 bucks.
Now the tycoon and philanthropist is hearing pitches from other entrepreneurs. As you can see in this exclusive preview of Friday's show, DeJoria is the first investor to make an offer to the founders of Better Life, a line of all-natural cleaning products.
Will they bite? Tune in to "Shark Tank," Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC to find out!
It's Splitsville for Haleb: 'Ravenswood' Spells the End for Caleb and Hanna's 'Pretty Little Liars' Romance
At the end of the "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special — the lead-in to its "Ravenswood" spinoff — Hanna (Ashley Benson) urged her boyfriend, Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), to stay in Ravenswood. Of course, she assumed he would eventually rejoin her.
And they will reunite — once.
W atch the "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween episode "Grave New World":
"Caleb does make an appearance again in the second half of the 'Pretty Little Liars' season for an episode," Blackburn told reporters during a press visit to the spooky New Orleans set.
With "Haleb" headed to splitsville, Miranda (Nicole Anderson) might have been the perfect choice to fill Hanna's shoes (swapping out her designer kicks with combat boots, of course).
Except for the fact that she's dead.

With this week's premiere of "The Tomorrow People," The CW is serving up a double dose of Amell on Wednesdays.
Stephen Amell's "Arrow" is the lead-in for his younger cousin Robbie's new superhero adaptation of a 1970s British series (and its 1990s revival). But while Stephen's Oliver Queen is a mere mortal — extraordinary abs and mad archery skills aside — Robbie's character (named Stephen!) has true superpowers, like telepathy, teleportation, and the ability to stop time.
How else do the Amells' super shows differ? Yahoo TV got the scoop from Robbie and his co-stars on a press junket to the new Vancouver set of "The Tomorrow People."
1. Fight scenes.
"We use teleporting in our fight sequences," explained Peyton List, who plays Robbie's love interest (complicated by a love triangle, natch). "It's a different type of fight — it is extremely technical. Especially when we are fighting other people who have our powers. That makes it really interesting."
"Shark Tank" investors Lori Grenier and Barbara Corcoran will finally go head-to-head in tonight's season premiere of the business-based reality series.
Traditionally, the women have played musical chairs, alternating in the seat between Kevin O'Leary and tech guru Robert Herjavec.
This season, however, both women are appearing together, on either side of Mr. Wonderful.
"It's been maybe two years overdue, in my opinion, but we're happy we're here," Corcoran said Wednesday on the set of the Emmy-nominated reality show, now filming its fifth season.
"When we were the token woman on the set, it [sent] a very bad message … to the young girls at home," added the real estate mogul. But now, in the opening of "Shark Tank," "you see two females on a set of guys looking like they're smart like the guys — right away, that is half the power of having two women on the set."
Everyone who knows the story of Ichabod Crane expected heads to roll on "Sleepy Hollow," Fox's new supernatural thriller. But killing John Cho? Unacceptable!
The "Star Trek" stud's shady cop, Andy Dunn, was dispatched in the premiere, just after locating the Headless Horseman's noggin.
Officer Andy was undeniably and reliably dead, but leading man Tom Mison (Crane) said that on "Sleepy Hollow," "the rulebook's out the window."
"Anything can happen," he told us. "You don't know when people are going to die — and when they are going to come back."
Hold up: Is Cho actually returning?
"Oh my god, is he ever!" executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Len Wiseman confirmed to Yahoo TV.
"Of course he's back," Kurtzman said, suggesting that the mere idea of hiring the popular actor for a one-and-done gig is ludicrous.
Few expected the two-time Emmy winner, celebrated for his dramatic roles, to star in a sitcom.
As police Capt. Ray Holt, the actor is playing the straight man — although his character is gay — to comedian Andy Samberg. It's a far cry from his fiery Marcus Chaplin, a submarine commander who launched a nuclear missile at Washington, D.C., in ABC's short-lived "Last Resort."
Even behind the scenes, his co-stars have come to expect the unexpected.
Co-star Chelsea Peretti, who plays the precinct's quirky office manager, told Yahoo TV that she was startled to learn "how much he wears cargo shorts."
"I had no idea," she said. "I'd never seen him outside of character, so that was a cool surprise."
"He also sings a lot," she revealed, "and listens to a lot of music."
And Samberg added, "Andre Braugher is more of a cutup than people think."
Watch a clip from "Brooklyn Nine-Nine":
The "Bones" wedding we've all been waiting for is happening — and soon! — but first, Booth (David Boreanaz) has to put a ring on it.
As heartbroken fans know, the FBI agent was forced to end his brief engagement to Brennan (Emily Deschanel) at the secret behest of serial killer Pelant. (Guess he's not on Booth's shortlist for best man.)
While Bones suspects there's more to Booth's "cold feet" than he's able to confide, her loyal BFF is on the warpath.
"Angela is angry at the fact that he'd called off this wedding that has been in the works for many years," actress Michaela Conlin told Yahoo TV. "I wouldn't say that [Booth]'s perceived as the bad guy at all — in anyone's eyes except Angela's."
It's unclear how Booth deals with the real bad guy, but Pelant's threat is just a short roadblock in the lovebirds' trip to the altar.

The "Breaking Bad" cast made a spectacular entrance at Wednesday night's premiere, rolling right up to the red carpet in the departing series' iconic mobile meth lab.
A cloud of yellow smoke and sulfur surrounded the battered RV when Aaron Paul — who was behind the wheel — and his castmates opened the bullet-ridden door and toasted their final season.
Along for the ride were two lucky fans, who won the chance to carpool with the cast by donating to a fundraiser for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Star Bryan Cranston, who is heavily involved with the charity, concocted the idea, which ended up netting more than $400,000.

The AMC zombie hit didn't deviate from its usual panel MO: offering up a few tasty morsels about the upcoming season but nothing meaty for fans to really chew on. After screening a tantalizing trailer for Season 4, showrunner Scott Gimple acknowledged that "it's going to get insane very quickly." No kidding: The walkers are evolving from solo wanderers to aggressive herds. "It's an escalation," said creator Robert Kirkman. "The world is getting worse."
Watch the Season 4 Comic-Con trailer now:
Fortunately, the producers and cast were a bit more forthcoming during interviews with the press later that afternoon. Here are a few of the highlights: "TWD" Meets "World War Z"
"It's a world in which the walkers predominate more than ever, and they're pressing in upon them," executive Gale Anne Hurd told reporters. "They're not just out one walker in a field somewhere. They're omnipresent, and they're pretty ravenous. And boy, does Greg Nicotero have some new tricks up his sleeve."
